Abhinav Bindra made the World Cup finals too. But he evidently finished last in the finals. I think he is entitled to a bad day at the office, but he remains a very strong contender for an Olympic medal.

The Afro-Asian Games are beginning in just over a week and our shooters will get some good competition.

Kathir,

Dhruv has some nice information about it on his "An updated how to guide" in this forum.

There are two ways of doing it - a nicer way and a not so nicer way (I use the latter version - oops sorry, Dhruv).

I will cut and paste Dhruv's hints here and I will delete my message after you can put the link in this forum.

"POSTING LINKS TO OTHER SITES
Now you can do the following
Code:
http://www.tennisindia.org or
http://www.indianfootball.com
but the result of that is ugly esp if it is a long link.

http://www.tennisindia.org or http://www.indianfootball.com

A nicer way to do it is
Code:
Tennis Indiaor
IndianFootball or
Vasco Football Club

The result of the above is much nicer as you can see.
Tennis India or IndianFootball or Vasco Football Club. I cheated I also bolded them but you get the idea." - Dhruv's notes.

Mansher singh, Manavjit Singh and Anwar Sultan won the gold in the team trap event.

Now they are in line for a quota berth.

Mansher and Manavjit made it to the finals and kept their chances alive for an Olympic berth.

Samresh Jung, who failed to clinch the berth in the 10m Air Pistol will get another chance on Feb 17th in the 25m Standard Pistol event.

Yes, but shooting is like archery. Anything can happen and it all deponds on the day's form. Hope our shooters withstand the mental pressures to come out successful at Athens.

The sheer number of world-class performers who'll be representing India will hopefully ensure that a few medals will come our way. Let's hope our shooters are getting good mental preparation.
